into work

 just color
 yesterday the mail brought
papers from aimee
the bottom two of milkweed 
 the crescent could not be caught
this morning
as i un-pressed a stack
of ecoprinted arches
another dozen sheets for fall
 virgin can lids sometimes surprise me!
 leftovers for the compost
printed last year
can you guess the plant?
to become a substrate for asao's moon
a piece for his upcoming shifu exhibit.
fall brings thoughts of weaving for me,
follow this to read 
a thoughtful piece about my 
blogfriend joanne kaar.

My first thought was St. Johnswort, but... then I second guessed it. Cool can.
